FG Grants Dangote Cement Exemption From Land Border Closure by MummyIMadeIt: 10:04pm On Nov 09, 2020
The Nigerian government has allowed Dangote Cement to resume exports across its land borders, raising hopes that Africa’s most populous nation may be opening up trade with neighbors after a year-long blockade.

President Muhammadu Buhari‘s administration gave its authorization for Africa’s biggest producer to export cement to Niger and Togo in the third quarter for the first time in ten months, Michel Puchercos, chief executive officer, said on an investor call in Lagos. The export was made possible “through authorization given by this administration,” he said.

The exemption to Dangote Cement is seen as a softening of the government’s position on a border closure that started in August last year, and could open the way for other bushinesses to fully resume exports across the country’s land barriers.

Nigerian authorities closed borders with neighboring countries including Benin and Niger to curb smuggling and boost local production. Although the blockade encouraged the consumption of locally grown produce such as rice, it hurt factories across West Africa, which rely on Nigeria’s market of 200 million people.

Dangote resumed land export with “restricted volumes,” and plans to grow the trade using the sea channels, according to Puchercos.

U don't want others to export rice and other things to ur country but u want to export cement to dere country.

If I was the president of those countries I will close my own border till Nigeria opens her border.

If buhari knows what he is doing he will open up our border so that price of food will come down.

There was a country.

Nigeria is a private company owned by the rich. It's a pity that in a country of over 200 million citizens, a cattle rearer with no high school certificate is in charge of the affairs of a nation.

This is the resultant effect !

I don't have problem with dangote exporting his product to other countries, my problem is this dullard that has not make a sufficient production of foods possible in his country before blocking other import in countries that had been rescuing us on healthy food


only God knows what this rice from North must have been doing to our body system, no rice preservation, na so so stones stones, thanks to smugglers that still smuggle some foreign rice to us here, na so stone for full person tummy


Buhari swear that na local rice you dey chop since your fellow aboki adviser told you to shut the border? the only useful president North gave us is Yar'adua and they got him killed for the good work because of his governance liberalism, all the rest of Northern leaders are beast and in a sane country they should have been gun down to prevent this epidemic we have at the helm of our national government today
